Raspberries are always best picked in the early morning, don’t you think? I like to get out there when the sun is just coming up, and the day is still quiet. The dew has not evaporated yet, and the world is glistening. I take a small bowl out with me, gently taking the berries from the plant, and placing them in the bowl. I give thanks as I do so – thanks for the lovely, peaceful nature of this time of morning, thanks for the health of the plants, and thanks for the lovely addition to my supper. raspberries – they give us a new perspective on life, if we allow them to.
